Many people make a "ToDo" list by job time - how long it takes a given task 2 B done, from longest time or shortest time.Some people list things N order as they think of them. I prioritize by what needs 2 B done. A items absolutely have to get done NOW. B items are things that can be done later.
'C' items would be nice to get done - sometime. When A's are done I re-prioritize. Some C items have dropped off. Some new A's may be added. B's have moved to A's or dropped to C's. Always be working on the important tasks in your life and you will be happier. Nit-picky 'C's aren't worth the worry.

When I arrive at work, I make a list of what I need to get done that day. I then work according to the list. There are times when other demands pop up, but I am able to explain my situation and then the new demand can be prioritized or reassigned.
My old boss used to say "how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time" and that has really stuck with me. When I get too much going on and start getting stressed out, I take time out to make a list and "prioritize" what I need to do. Then, I take each item on the list and get them done "one bite at a time".
